Job Description

Start date: 6th July 2020

Location: Filton

To stay on top, Airbus recognises the importance of supporting high-achieving and talented undergraduates. We do this through offering challenging internship opportunities during which your skills and potential are fully maximised.

Our internships give a unique insight into potential career paths within Airbus. They are designed so that you can put your theoretical knowledge into practice and gain crucial industry experience. The skills and knowledge you gain will improve your chances of a future role within the Airbus and should benefit your future studies.

The internship will support current Additive Manufacturing (AM) research and technology within the Airbus Central Research and Technology (CR&T) team.

CR&T researches disruptive AM technologies to support ‘generation-after-next’ products in all Airbus business unit divisions – from civil aircraft and helicopters to defence and space applications.  The team also supports the AM technical qualification and industrialization through expertise gained through previous research into the relevant technology.

The internship will be based in the new Airbus Wing Integration Centre state of the art facility.  The placement will involve hands on practical AM experience within the facility alongside theoretical research to support to the AM Tech qualification activities and upstream additive manufacturing technology and applications. Examples of the upstream opportunities are the use of multi material additive manufacturing and exploitation of the design and manufacturing freedom offered by AM to create unique performance meta materials that were previously not possible via conventional manufacturing methods.


During this internship, the activities you may undertake will include;

  • Design for AM – 3D solid modelling part and build design
  • Materials characterization and development – e.g. high performance titanium, aluminium, steel and inconel.
  • AM process characterization, simulation and development,
  • Post processing technologies – inspection, heat treatments and surface improvement


Please note, we love your interest in working for Airbus but we do ask that you make only one application. We encourage you to take time to decide which of our exciting opportunities is right for you and then submit an application that best represents you, your skills and experience in connection with the role you have selected.

One application: Make It Possible, Make It Happen, Make It … Count!

Our Internships are open to Undergraduates only. Therefore it is mandatory for candidates to be an undergraduate for the whole duration of the placement.

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate the following;

  • You will be an undergraduate studying towards an engineering degree
  • You will have a passion for Airbus and an interest in the aviation industry
  • You are a team player

Please ensure that a covering letter detailing motivations and suitability for this position is included in your application.
